Brac­ing for the worst

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Carolina Pan­thers coach Ron Rivera said All-Pro linebacker Thomas Davis had surgery Mon­day on his bro­ken right fore­arm, but is ex­pected to play in the Su­per Bowl. Rivera says it’s “my un­der­stand­ing is if ev­ery­thing goes well it is some­thing he can mostly cer­tainly play with - so we are ex­cited about that pos­si­bil­ity.” Rivera says the 11-year NFL vet­eran may need to wear a brace on his arm sim­i­lar to the one New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots tight end Rob Gronkowski wears. Davis broke his arm in the se­cond quar­ter of Carolina’s 49-15 win over the Ari­zona Car­di­nals on Sun­day in the NFC cham­pi­onship. Davis said af­ter the game he fully ex­pected to play in the Feb. 7 Su­per Bowl be­cause, “I be­lieve in me.”
